Henry Otis Dwight
A Present Day Story of Islam in Turkey
Here is a pathetic significance in this true story of a heart quest for a better religion than is to be found in the wild fastnesses of the Eastern mountains.To many who hide their secret yearnings amid the shadows of Islam he brings welcome news of a religion which shows a better way and teaches a higher life.
Dr. Dwight's local colouring is genuine, and he gives true glimpses into real experiences in the lives of thoughtful Muslims whose hearts have not found peace and spiritual rest in Islam. This story of Selim suggests struggles and perils of which the free born know nothing. The author has lived for many years in the atmosphere of incidents such as he records, and can vouch
for the basis of truth which underlies them.
